The food is very tasty with generous portions. I have never had a bad meal there. I do agree that it is not a sit down enviroment, but an excellent choice for take out. Keep it in perspective negatives.
I thought the food was great, and very reasonably priced. Atmosphere is not a big deal to me... some of the best restaurants in Lafayette are not fancy. True there was not a lot of staff on hand, but the employees that waited on my party were friendly and prompt. I love this place, and make a point of going every time I return home to Louisiana!
I love this restaurant. Despite other reviews, I dont feel the locale of the restaurant determines the taste of the food. The food is very good in my opinion. Every time I order anything, it is fresh, seasoned, and delectable. I always get the combination plate with kibby and it always is explosive. The restaurant is an express restaurant so it does lack the amenities of a full fledged Greek Restaurant but that should be understood since you are getting your food express. There is also another location that is a restaurant and a very find establishment.
The employees are always welcoming and inviting and the place is always busy so there is not much time to cater to each person as if they are the only guests but they do fine in ensuring our order is correct and we leave happy and satisfied with out mean and service.
All in all, I feel this is a wonderful restaurant with a decent menu and great prices. If I wanted Zeus, I would go to Zeus--some people are just too picky. It's one thing to critique and establishment and list its pros and cons, but it's another to bash it because it's not to your liking.
This is the nasiest food i have ever tasted! I much prefer Zeus. This place is ridiculous.
There were only 3 waiters in the whole restaurant and that was including the cashier.
Also the atmosphere was horrible! One side of the place was the restaurant and the other side was a grocery store! Usually in restaurants the waiters/waitresses have the numbers to their tables memorized, at this place there are stickers on the wall telling you what number table you are at.
The only greek-ish feel to it is the murals painted on the walls...other than that, it looks like a gas station with a subway on the other side.
One of us ordered the vegetable plate and it came with fried eggplant, french fries, grape leaves, and rice. What kind of a vegetable plate is that?!?! We thought they had gotten our order wrong or something.
This is a horrible restaurant and i wouldnt recommend it to anyone!
They recently moved Athena to behind Bennigans on Ambassador Caffrey.
I LOVE THIS PLACE!! for a quick greek experiance, i would suggest this place.. the chicken shawarma is wonderful! the hummus is excelent.. and the way they cook their meets on those grills and carve them off is cool too.. makes the meat taste great! It is in a gas station but I beleive its the best greek food in town! TRY IT! You wont be sorry..
i'm sure many people have never given this place a second glance since it's inside a gas station, but to me it is the BEST greek food in lafayette. the prices are lower then zeus and the portions are huge. also, their hummus is really good. they've opened a full service restaraunt near the mall that i haven't been to, but trust me, don't write off the original location just because it's in a gas station.
I enjoyed the food here. It was delicious and the portions were large for the price. I was able to eat twice off of my meal. The service was a little slow but there was only one person running the front. It took about 15 minutes total to get my food to go. But i will most certainly eat here again.
